In Memoriam: Mike Longsdorf – MCL Companies


Mike & MCL Companies have been a member of NWR Builders Exchange since 1992.  We extend our sympathies to Mike’s wife and family along with his business family.

Michael C. Longsdorf, 62, of Eau Claire, passed away on April 18, 2023, surrounded by loved ones after a very short, but valiant, battle with cancer.

Mike was born January 2, 1961, to Calvin and Patricia (Anibas) Longsdorf. He grew up in his beloved hometown of Plum City, Wisconsin, and he always talked about the many friends and memories made there. Mike worked for years with his father’s concrete business, Precise Concrete, where he developed his love of the construction industry and entrepreneurship.

On April 11, 1987, Mike married Tina Marie Herbst of Dubuque, Iowa, and they moved to their current home in Eau Claire where they raised their children, Calli Lynn and Cody Michael. In 1991, Mike created MCL Companies, a successful general contracting firm, which he operated until his passing. Mike and his wife became the owner/operators of two Arby’s franchises in Chippewa Falls, as well as many other business ventures over the years.

Mike is survived by the love of his life and wife of 36 years, Tina (Herbst) Longsdorf; daughter, Calli Longsdorf (Josh Brown); son, Cody (Kate) Longsdorf; proud papa of grandsons, Leo and Levi Longsdorf; parents, Calvin and Patricia Longsdorf; brothers, Randy (Cheri) Longsdorf, Ron (Tracy) Longsdorf; sister, Lori Larson Heller; many brothers and sisters-in-law, many nieces and nephews, and by many, many friends too numerous to count.

Memorial Visitation will be held from 3-7 p.m. Friday, May 5, 2023, at Chippewa Valley Cremation Services – Celebration of Life Center, 1717 Devney Drive, Altoona. Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 6, 2023, at St. Olaf Catholic Church with Father James Kurzynski celebrating the mass. A Celebration of Life will take place at Wagner’s Lanes in Eau Claire immediately following the mass going until 8 p.m. Private burial will be held at a later date.
